In a daring attempt to end the war by Christmas, Winston Churchill and the British High Command hatch an extraordinary plan - Operation Market Garden. 35,000 British troops are dropped behind enemy lines in German occupied Holland. In the midst of the largest airborne invasion in history, one small unit of men, codename "Matchbox" has its own agenda. When Matchbox are shot down short of their landing zone, the odds of their success seem hopeless. Seven very different British soldiers find themselves separated from the Allied invasion, on a collision course with three renegade German soldiers who also want to lay claim to the horde. Written by
What better time for a heist than in the fog of war.

The rank insignia worn by SS Major Klaus Kessler is that of Brigadeführer (Brigadier General) which was used on SS uniforms between 1940 and 1942, not that of Sturmbannführer (Major). The storyline is set during Operation Market Garden which was in 1944. Also because Kessler was an SS officer, the proper manner to which he would be addressed is "Herr Sturmbannführer", not "Herr Major". See more
